inches or more from seattle in western washington all the way down to san francisco, the bay area, even southern california will get heavy rain from the system. >> i understand there's also snow to expect. >> there's a lot of snow to expect. not in california, because pineapple express is this tropical moisture can sometimes move up the coast and give us a high snow level. but if you're talking oregon, and washington and idaho and montana, it's snowing lightly this evening but that snow is really going to pick up later on tonight and especially on sunday. and check out all the winter storm warnings and winter weather advisers. portions of western montana and northern idaho may see two or three feet of snow as soon as tomorrow night. that's not good news for travelers but skiers are going to love a pattern like this. >> paul, thank you. on the other side of the pacific, more saber rattling by north korea. the secretive regime announced today it will pry again to test launch a new long-range rocket. anna werner is in washington tonight. >> reporter: president kim jong-un said his country

, and ms. o'grady and washington columnist kim stossel. you are stuck in washington having to talk to all the sources. and you have been working them this week, i know. is the mood as sour as it sounds? >> it is by the end of this week and here's why. republicans came out right after the election and said to the president, you want revenue, here. you want revenue on the wealthy? we will give it to you. let's do this via limbing tax deductions for the wealthy. the president instead of taking that, running it, ceiling a deal, has been out campaigning for tax hikes. and to cap it off, sent treasury secretary tim geithner down to congress this week with this absolutely outrageous proposal that's basically a compilation of everything the president wanted in his budget. it's beyond what he even campaigned for. and as a result i think most republicans wonder just how serious he is about doing this. they feel things are going backwards. >> that's the way it sounded to me, too. i talk to some senior republicans this week and they are increasingly of the belief that maybe the president wants to bac
website called the washington free beacon has millions of dollars in investments of companies linked to iran and rattled off the list and how she got confirmed as a u.n. ambassadorship and the romney campaign never noticing this as the issues of iran and weapons heating up and coming up in independent voices like the beacon, that maybe it will get-- it will derail her. >> jon: the media seem to be circling the wagons around here, judy. >> oh, yes, john mccain's racist theme has been picked up steam and regurgitated not just by people on nbc, "the washington post" editorial pointed out something astonishing to me, of the 90 people who signed the letter objecting to susan rice's nomination or potential nomination as secretary of state, 80 of them were male and about half of them came from states that used to have slaves a hundred years ago, and this was-- when this kind of reasoning gets into the mainstream media, we've got problems. >> jon: you know, the accusation directed the at senator mccain in particular, who voted to approve colin powell as secretary of state and condoleezza ric
were talking about, the negotiations in washingtons. the at some point, somebody, maybe the republicans have to speak up ab defend the real economy against the sort of policies they're talking about down there. >> they get wrapped up in the insider baseball and we're guilty of that, too, and playing to that and people out there. what they really want to know is the economy going to grow or not. if you're increasing taxes on dividend, you get less capital and dividends and then less growth for the economy and less revenue for the government. >> well, a lot of people worry about the many years that japan has been in a slow growth environment, but they've kept interest rates very low in japan, but the problem is, government is too big. that's why japan has not been able to start growing again. and this is the path that the u.s. is certainly on if we don't change that dynamic. >> paul: kim, is there any recognition about this in washington or is it all -- i mean, do you hear any of this discussion or do they really believe, certainly, the white house and the treasury, that tax rates like th
in washington, the kind of spending that would cut the 4 billion dollars worth of additional spending every day, that's the long-term not the short-term to prevent being back in this place a year from now and that's going to get the country back on its feet. >> don't get excited. i know gary b will as well. and short-term uncertainty. it's been long-term and we've been going through this for years and washington in the doing anything. what does that do to the economic recovery? >> i think you see it with the stock market, brenda, everything is pretty much frozen. look, you cant pick up a paper, a paper or look on the internet and see fiscal crisis. everyone now is focused on it and i don't care if you're inside the beltway or outside the beltway. and it does a couple of things, if we don't get past this deadline and i agree with larry in principle, but the fact if we don't get past the deadline, people are one, going to view government as totally inept or more inept than it is right now. and businesses free us up and they're afraid of doing anything and the individual freezes up. look, who is g
in washington. when there are rules, they get changed to any argument you like. you can hire an economist to say what you like. >> they are the worst. >> all you are doing is arguing over the 20% in the middle. >> this is an amazing vision of politi politics. one politician, one economist, it's true. it's absolutely true. any argument, you can get a politician, economist and 40 people. >>> as long as you have a party label. >> exactly. >> then it enters, once you get to 40 and 40, it enters a round where it's debated as if reality is debated. it's not what has been debated in this country for a long time. there are no hard and fast rules that apply. it is the political argument that wins the day, one way or the other. >> taxes are political, right? >> i want to follow up on what the governor was saying. he was given an example and highlighted. we have been talking about fiction, about well, okay, if we cut taxes, the economy gets better. then the fake argument is spend, spend, spend. in reality, as we are seeing it out, it's a mixture of both. we have to do smart investments, bringing in revenue
on the president to realize that this is a conversation that he has to have not just with washington but the rest of the country. bringing in business leaders, bringing in small business leaders, going out across the country. one reason i think why this time it's going to be different from the failures of the past, the debt ceiling debacle, the failure of the super committee, is i think the american people and particularly the american business community, realize what's at stake, and i think an awful lot of us, frankly, in both parties who are willing to get there -- i want to commend kelly as well. there's been a big group of us, well in excess of the majority in the senate who say we're willing to do our part. we want to give the speaker and the president room to get the framework, but we'll be there to fill in the details as we go forward. >> senator ayotte, there's not much time left here, and it does seem like an inordinate amount of time, almost a month has passed, and we have a description of stalemate and way far apart. >> candy, i see that as very disappointing, a big problem. that's why

to drum up support among the public. not in washington or with congress or the senate. here is what he had to say. >> it is not acceptable to me, and i do not think it is acceptable to you for a handful of republicans in congress will middle-class tax cuts hostage simply because they don't want tax rates on upper income folks go up. gerri: it sounds like the same old, same old. the president has been making the sa comments again. is this any way to sell a plan? >> there really is not. the president is not being serious about this. the fact that the president is out there campaigning on this rather than negotiating, it means that those that are negotiating, such as secretary geithner, they probably don't feel bound by what the president is saying. th is the fit gammons and certainly not a serious offer. >> mitch mcconnell laughed out loud on camera at the plant. what do you make of that? >> he had every reason to. let's look at this plan for what it is. a massive tax hike. instead of offering tax hikes, which is something that republicans have been mandated, he wants more spending and he's
yesterday. people living in northern california, oregon and washington state are bracing for rising rivers and possible mudslides. >>> supporters of mohammad morsi blocked the high court from indefinitely suspending all court sessions. that would suspend a ruling on the drawing up of egypt's new constitution. president morsi declared his decisions are now immune from judicial oversight. >>> it is a frightening and deadly scene in japan. just look at this. at least two cars are still trapped inside a highway tunnel after a massive section of the concrete structure collapsed. police say they have already found several burned bodies inside the rubble about 50 miles west of tokyo. it is not clear what caused the tunnel to cave in or how many cars were inside at the time. >>> a thousand cars and trucks are stuck on a highway in russia after a major snowstorm caused a backup two days ago. a 30-mile stretch of roadway between moscow and st. petersburg is completely jammed with one lane open in each side. it is so bad that field kitchens have been set up. drivers are also running out of gas to kee
the fiscal cliff deadline. and while the deal will actually be made in washington, politicians are taking their message on the road and straight to the voters. cnn political editor paul steinhouser has more. >> good morning. the presidential election may be fading into the rearview mirror, but it feels a lot like campaign season. >> i'm already missing the time that i spent on the campaign visiting towns like this and talking to folks like you. >> we love you. >> i love you back. >> the president speaking at a cam tpaign style event in philadelphia, pushing to avert the fiscal cliff. house republicans hours before the president's trip push back against mr. obama's plans in their own campaign style video. >> this notion of $250,000 being top 2% or the wealthy people in america ignores the way most small businesses work in america. >> this political fight is over policy, but if you weren't paying attention, you'd swear the presidential election was still going on. while the fiscal cliff battle plays out, campaign politics marches on. >> i want to help create a better united states. >> we're
the grover norquist pledge is actually incredibly misunderstood. it's based on what washington budgeting organizations call the current law baseline. what that means is that what's scheduled to go into effect already is baked into the cake. and because the bush tax cuts are expiring provisions that were voted for ten years ago, it doesn't really count as a tax hike when they're already scheduled to take effect. so as long as republicans can just keep the revenue below what taxes would raise to in full expiration of the bush tax cuts, they won't be violating the pledge. >> kevin, that sounds incredibly reasonable. do you think grover norquist shares that interpretation? >> so there's an important distinction to be made between what the pledge actually says and what americans for tax reform, his activist organization advocates for. as grover said himself, the pledge is to the american people, not to grover norquist. so it's not just, you know, republicans need grover norquist's approval for what they want to do. it's more that americans for tax reform wants to keep tax rates low despite th
in washington? >>> president obama presses the case for tax hikes on the rich, and the tax cut extension for the middle class, now. >> if congress does nothing, every family in america will see their taxes automatically go up at the beginning of next year. >> but republicans aren't budging, accusing the president of avoiding tough choices on spending and wasting time in the effort to avoid the fiscal cliff. >> it's not a serious proposal. and so right now, we're almost nowhere. >> will there be a deal by the end of the year? and what are the consequences for the economy if there isn't one? we'll ask the president's lead budget negotiator, treasury secretary tim geithner. >>> then the view from capitol hill. are democrats as divided over cutting medicare as republicans are over tax increases? with us, two voices calling for compromise. republican senator bob corker of tennessee and democratic senator claire mccaskill of missouri. >>> finally, our special economic roundtable. as both sides battle over the nation's fiscal health, what can we expect from the economy in a second obama term? w
along washington will follow. the president is out campaigning, reminding the republicans of where public sentiment is. it infur rates them. he has to put the heat on them. >> let's listen to what john boehner said this morning. here it is. >> right now, i would say we're nowhere. peri period. we're nowhere. we have put a serious offer on the table by putting revenues up to try to get this question resolved, but the white house has responded with nothing. they have asked for more revenue than they have been asking for the whole time. >> is that a serious offer if it's just talk that they are willing to raise revenues, and if those revenues aren't tax hikes on the top 2% that the president is call iing for? >> it depends on the starleting point versus the end point. for republicans, the issue they are dealing with is they are going to face blame and internal problems no matter what happens. so for them, if they get an offer from the president that they can at least sell as including significant spending cuts or entitlement reform, that when they agree to allow the tax rates go up, t

in the washington bureau. is there any movement on either side. >> not much. a few republicans who are willing to talk about higher tax rev news but not higher tax rates. the president made a direct appeal to the public. the toy factory in pin pen. he urged congress to pass a bill and extend the era tax cuts for middle class only. >> congress could prevent a tax hike on the first 250,000, of everybodiy income. that means 98 percent of americans and nen percent of small businesses wouldn't see income taxes go up at all . even the wealthiest americans would get a tax cut on $250,000 of the income. democrats are pushing for a vote and it was approved by the secretary. >> and republican leaders what are their next move. >> they are sticking to their guns on the tax rate . they are reacting strongly to the plan that the president uned this week. house spheeker - on speaker boehner said it was not a serious proposal. it is an advantage to run the clock out and getting closer to the deadline in the end of the year. at some point if there is a break through it has to happen in a short manner. it takes

us live from washington and so ellie, did anyone on any of the talk shows offer something resembling a bipartisan deal, or was effort just negativity? >> when the weekend began, an official who's very familiar with this -- as we saw on the talk shows today, there's no word that anything has been added to anyone's calendars in the past couple of days. so is there hope a deal can be reached? certainly that hope is still alive. but is there a timeline in place as to when it will happen, that's not known. >> emily schmidt, for us live in washington. thanks so much. >>> a series of suicide car bombings leave five people dead in eastern afghanistan today, insui insure gents -- taliban has claimed tonight for the attacks. >>> the internet blackout is over in syria. meanwhile a car bomb went off near a mosque and homes killing 15 people and wounding 24 hours. another car bomb wounded 34 people. >>> mexico has a new president, but not everyone is happy about it. protesters clashed with police outside the congress as president enrique panieto was being sworn in. protesterings threw rocks. >>>
, as geithner, the point man, went on all five sunday talk shows, cnbc, washington correspondent aman javers joining me live now. did geithner offer anything new today? >> he really didn't. he thinks the republicans are bluffing here and they are not prepared to go all the way to the mat here on behalf of tax cuts for the rich. they think at the white house they've got their republicans backed into a political corner here, and they are really pressing their advantage hard. you saw this sort of breathtaking offer by the president of the united states last week when he offered basically to include $ 50 billion of new spending at a time everyone else thought we were having a debate about spending cuts here. the president feeling he has the upper hand here in the negotiation and that's what geithner is doing on his behalf up on the hill. >> the white house said they are not going to put forth another plan until republicans bring something to the table. the president was in pennsylvania at the toy factory late last week. what's the strategy going forward for the administration, what's the strateg

-brainer for boehner. let's play "hard ball." good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. snb's got to break it to mr. boehner. your side lost. romney, remember him? he's the guy who ran on the rich man's platform. he's the guy who said to fellow 2%ers, got your back. told the other 47% to go fly a kite. they look this decision directly in the eye. they heard the president blaring away about the need to hit the 2%. they heard your guy playing palace guard and they said i think i'll vote for the guy who's looking out for the middle class. time for mr. janer to stop defending his rejected politics, stop talking about the rich and threatening more fights to defend them. the fight was clean and clear. trying to do what the people leektded them to do. join the managing director. 47%. both are msnbc. like the way i lowered my voice there? today the president took his tax pitch to the factory in the nilly suburbs and made clear the rich must pay their fair share meaning they must go up to the top 2%. a tax cult for 98%. the rest of the people, let's listen to them. >>
details this morning on the latest developments from washington. good morning, peter. >> good morning, eric. spieger boehner said negotiations are nowhere, period and he called treasury secretary tim geithner's presentation of the white house proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff earlier in week "nonserious." >> i was flabbergasted. i lookedded a him like you can't be serious. i've just never seen anything like it. you know we have seven weeks between election day and the end of the year. three of those weeks have been wasted with this nonsense. >> reporter: here is what has the speaker flabbergasted. the white house would like to raise tax rates on top earners to where they were in the clinton administration, 39.6%. they would also like to raise $1.6 trillion with new taxes over the next decade, while cutting about $400 billion through entitlement reform. although, those cuts are not specific and not guaranteed. but the treasury secretary says the administration's plan is fiscally responsible and would prevent taxes from going up on 98% of americans. >> we think that is a very good set

. the open secret in washington was warren rudman's winning salesmanship was a large part of how gramm-rudman-hollings became law. i do not mean in any way to belittle the responsibility in the responsibility of senator hollings and our man right here. he was really a good salesman. i have to say this about phil gramm. it is not in my remarks. phil and i have had a lot of fun over the years. i am famous for saying things probably i should not, you know? [laughter] one of the things i told phil -- i have never known him to lose a debate or win a vote. [laughter] i just couldn't pass that up. i am only able to tell that in front of small audiences before. [laughter] he was a centrist never afraid to take on his own party to reach out to democrats. shortly before announcing he would not seek a third term to serve people of new hampshire, he took both parties to task for failure to work together to stem these raising deficits. he said -- is it not possible with the brilliance, with the goodwill, with the good sense, could we not all come together? he said this on the senate floor. as a nat
of the biggest five or ten or the biggest crony capitalists in the country. he basically went on washington and said, yes, you really need to pass this bailout. afterwards the stimulus. i will help out by investing in every one of the entities you will bailout for pens on the dollars or dimes on the dollar. >> he took this money? >> absolutely. he invested in companies that benefited from the stimulus money at great terms and he made billions. he has profited directly from his ability to convince washington lawmakers that he has wisdom that we should all listen to. when do rich people get to tell me when my morale should feel better. he should have said it in a russian or german accent. >> jedediah, do you fall for this grandpa act? >> no. and he knows darn well our system is already progressive. the top 10% pay about 70% of all taxes. he is only interested in pushing success if it doesn't pertain to him, if he doesn't pertain to the cronies or people who benefit from comfy relationships with the obama administration. and it is really insulting to middle class workers to say you need some i
the department of defense, they'll have 1600 of the collectors according to the washington post, there are already around 500 case officers at the defense intelligence agency. gathers tension for the military by 2018. they'll have about a thousand and that number will keep growing as the defense intelligence agency transitions over to the new dcs spies will be trained by the cia, but unlike the cia, the dcs is not going to be able to do anything, but gath gather intelligence, political sabotage and drone strikes continue to be cia operations and of dcs, focus on i.d.ing targets. and in recent months, those priorities have been keeping tabs on problem areas like africa, iran, north korea and even the strengthening military in china. this was signed off on by the defense secretary, leon panetta who used to be a cia chief and by general david petraeus who stepped down as cia chief after an extramarital affair was exposed last month, as for funding, the pentagon gave the dcs about 100 million dollars just to get the program started, but their overall budget is not expected to grow.
is what we are after. peter doocy live in washington with more. peter, tell us first, speaker boehner -- the big problem right now with the white house proposal that was just presented. >> jamie, speaker boehner says he was flabbergasted when the treasury secretary geithner came to capitol hill and told him what the president wants. and this is why. >> the president is asking for $1.6 trillion worth of new revenue in ten years. twice as much as he has been asking for in public. he had stimulus spending in here that exceeded the amount of new cuts he was willing to consider. it was not a serious offer. >> reporter: secretary geithner says the white house $4 trillion plan has 2 to 1 ratio of cuts to spending increases. but everything we heard from speaker boehner suggests the $1.6 trillion in new revenue the white house wants is too much. especially since boehner does not want to increase tax rate at all. he wants the revenue from the closed loopholes and limited deduction. >> put a new deal on the table but tim geithner, does he say specifically where he sees the tax rate for the top e
of journalists, anna marie cox and karen tumblty, a political reporter for the "washington post." good sunday afternoon to both of you. >> anna marie, let me start with you. for about two days after the election, everyone is holding hands, singing kumbaya. no one is singing any more. all of that optimism seems to have disappeared. we're hearing more lawmakers saying publicly, we just heard from lindsay graham yesterday. i had a congressman from vermont on the show, he said the same thing that we could very well be jumping over this cliff. posturing or reality? >> well i think it's something of a reality. but this is case where the moniker of fiscal cliff i think is going to wind up hurting republicans. because it sounds so scary. even though there is not going to be any immediate fiery death, if things don't happen. and i think the president kind of looks better going into this, i think they know that they say in game of chicken, he who cares the least wins. and i think it's the white house who kind of just is going to let the republicans play this out. however they want. and there's also a c
in washington. the filibuster. the mangled manipulated, miss appropriated filibuster. there is a filibuster that most of us love. that would be the jimmy stewart, mr. smith goes to washington kind. the way it used to be. or at least the way it used to be romanticized. one lone political hero standing on the senate floor fighting for what he knows is right using the senate rule saying that one senator one speaking can speak for as long as he or she wants so long as he or she continues speaking and standing. it could prevent a vote and single handedly save the day for the cause he held so dear. a much less romantic version of that rare event when the late senator strom thurman set the record going 24 hours, 18 minutes all to try to derail the civil right acts of 1957. here he is romanticizing about how he set the record. >> how did you last 24 hours? you never left the senate floor. >> i don't answer the -- beforehand and dried out my body. >> in the sauna? >> yes. so i wouldn't be tempted to go to the bathroom. so i was able to do that. >> oh, dehydration, no big deal when you're trying to s
